Recipe type: Salad, Side Dish, Vegetable Dish
Cuisine: American & Chinese
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 Cabbage
  • 6 Green Onions
  • 1 packet of Saimin (top ramen) w/ seasoning packet - I use the vegetarian flavor
  • 1 8-oz bag of Sliced Almonds
  • 2 Tbsp of Sesame Seeds
  • Dressing:
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • ¼ tsp Sesame Oil
  • ⅓ cup Sugar
Instructions
  1. Wash and chop the cabbage and green onions.
  2. Spray a pan with a cooking spray and cook the saimin (top ramen) noodles + seasoning packet, sliced almonds, and sesame seeds.
  3. Cook until crispy and a little browned, but not burnt.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  5. Toss all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and serve immediately so the saimin, almonds and sesame seeds don't get soggy.
  6. ***If you are planning on taking this to a party, put the chopped cabbage + green onions in a giant Ziploc bag. After the crunchy mix of Saimin, almonds, and sesame seeds cool, put those is another Ziploc bag. Keep the dressing in a separate container. At the party, toss all 3 bags/containers together and serve!
  7. ***I usually prep this ahead and bring it to my events separated so nothing gets soggy.
